I found some pics of brides in the dress online. I think that you should try on something similar to see if you like the fit. Good Luck!

This dress is really similar to Davids Bridal CH515.  Maybe see if they have one you can try on?

There are some salons, if they carry that designer, can actually order it in to the store for brides to try on. There is usually a fee of like $50 to pay for shipping/handling to have the dress sent there, but the money wouldn’t matter when you try it on and fall in love with it- you should see if they do something like that

I actually called the stores in TX and this dress is no longer a part of the “loaner” program. Maggie will not send a sample to the store even if bride pays shipping. Only option is to find nearby alternatives with similar bodice. I am going to Houston next month to try on the Amour Bouquet Royale in pink… thats going to be hard not to get distracted by! I have already considered removing some of the lining on the regular Amour Brooch because I want it more straight than A-Line.

Good luck! Its definitely hard being in love with this dress!

@ kristalrhea I feel your pain. I also fell in love with a Maggie gown that I couldn’t find anywhere near me. I took a wild chance and ordered it without ever trying it on. Still waiting for it to arrive and have mild moments of panic from time to time as to whether I did the right thing.

The store that I bought it from agreed to not charge me a restocking fee if I decide against the dress and choose to purchase a new one. Here’s hoping that isn’t necessary!

I have it!! Its gorgeous! Mine is the Amour Royale Brooch, which I think just means the skirt is a little fuller. Sorry the pic is crappy, I am getting my bridals done in 2 weeks and will have more pics then!

I tried the Maggie Brooch on yesterday… its a size to big but it worked to get the general idea

I loved it!!!! but I will have to have it hemed quite a bit because I am only 5″1 nd even in heels its much to big on me.

I, too, fell in LOVE with this dress!  It was the one you just know this is “it”.. but I hesitated and when I went to go back and purchase it, it was SOLD!  🙁  I almost cried (I think I was hormonal – lol).  Anyway, I called every bridal shop between Dallas/Ft Worth and Austin and saw that another bride called every store in Texas, too – and nobody had it.  All the classifieds online were either not my size, not my color, or they just had an expired listing, etc.  I did try a few replica places and almost went with http://www.coralsbridal.com or http://www.ieiedress.com – they have stellar reviews, but at the last minute, I tried the Mori Lee 4814 on and again, it was love – yay!  So here is the Amour Brooch on a “real” bride with a rhinestone belted sash and without a petticoat:

FYI – I am a curvy gal and this was AWESOME for hiding my problem areas and flattering all the good ones.  😉  Good luck to all the others who fall in love with this dress – happy hunting on the web!

Oh – one more website that I recommend: http://www.allofcraigslist.org – I was also able to search every city and state in all categories for this dress, too!  It helped me out tremendously!
